Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by Jon Hein is God, Jul 1, 2013.
Wig still hates Carson's guts. I fucking loved Carson.
I agree with Howard that Carson was a first class asshole but he was the best at late night.
aw shit i meant to watch that.
Carson knew when to quit doing his show before becoming an irrelevant old man.
Howard probably tried to get on Carson and was rebuffed.
That is the way Stern rolls. Like a wigged elephant he never forgets.
Seinfeld shot Coward down when he tried to lead him down the hate Johnny road...
Howard made most of his fortune during the revolution.
watching this makes me sad. i want a time machine. the future sucks.
carson got a lot of tail
Is that going to be a regular show on TCM?
^^ Just on Mondays in July.
That's when Late night TV was GREAT!
Carson....followed by Letterman
Dave was great on NBC......sucks on CBS
I remember his sidekick Vince McMahon.
Carson quit when he did to fuck over the WNBC management who figured they would nudge him out and replace him with a younger man at their own timing. They were being typical corporate management trying to say that the talent didn't matter; that they made the Tonight Show, they made Carson and they could make anyone be a hit. Carson showed the world that management is useless; that talent is what makes the show not management, and that Carson and not WNBC management was always in control.
Guaranteed he tried to get on but couldn't--but I'm sure the only reason Carson wouldn't have him on is because he heard Wiggy goofing on him. Carson was notoriously thin-skinned.
He traded in his creativity and became a political hack.
I watched it last night. It was interesting and Johnny was a great interviewer, not sugary horsecrap like Leno either. One complaint I have about this show though is the editing....man it's kind of hinky, just random cuts for some reason...not sure why.
That's when there were only three networks. Cable still wasn't widely available yet and most American TV viewers only had access to about four or five channels. Seven or eight if you lived near a big city. Times change.
